Naturally.  But where that really bites is when you have a computer with
built-in non-replaceable hardware (laptops, some motherboards without
AGP, etc.).  Having to spend >$1000 for the sake of a driver is galling.
That's not just a Linux problem, though.

(This box runs Centos 5.0, my others still run FC 4, 5, 6, & 7, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
